COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

Bottle. Pours a mildly hazy, golden orange with a massive rocky white head, ridiculous retention and laces like a pair of Chuck Taylors. Nose is pine, cakey malts, dank basement, passion fruit, mango, overripe pineapple, muskmelon. Mouth is medium bodied, surprisingly very dry given the malt present in the nose, resinous pine, tropical fruit. Nicely balanced and an outstanding IPA (like I’d expect anything less from MBC).

I wasn’t too impressed with this beer. Pours a yellowish/orange with a thick white head, smells of malts, pines and a bit of tropical fruit. Taste is a bit of malts quickly overtaken by hops, mostly pinny with a bit of orange flavor

Bottle to tulip Spruce, grapefruit, pine, resin, and caramel. Clear light amber with a thick 4 cm white frothy head that quickly reduces to 4 mm. Taste is heavy grapefruit and pine bitterness and when that fades a light sweetness comes through.

NeuroPliny (143) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Poured from a 500 mL bottle. Colour is hazy orange with a generous yellow head. Thick lacing. Aroma is subtle tropical fruit, pine, sweet malt, and spices. Flavour is pleasant bitter hops, pine resin, pineapple, orange peel, lemon drop all on a background of well balanced malts. Pleasant effervescent mouthfeel. Finish is bitter. Gorgeous IPA!

Cirrhosis (1200) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Yum, straight from the bottle at sunset in my backyard. Clean cut strait forward IPA, has nice balance and a crisp finish. Lemon zest, tangerine, and white bread fill the nose. Beer is dry. Maine Beers are all pure quality. Grassy, biscutts, and poor spelling make up the malt character. Hoppy goodness with a lemon citrus, pine, and a rrgf flavor. This beer does not have a single fault except for it’s price point.

MrFecesious (942) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
500mL bottle. Hazy orange with a big white cap. Aroma of caramel and pine and grapefruit. Taste is sweet and bitter. Pretty basic ipa, but good balance and not too stripping. Good dryness.

BLADT (581) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle pour. Matte, golden orange. Lush head that reduces down to a nice sudsy top. Lacing throughout. Damn, that nose. Fresh, green grapefruit hops. A little tang from tropical fruit. Inviting. Taste pulls back a little from the sticky, green aromas, but still lots of hoppy goodness. Pine and grapefruit, buttressed with melon, over perfectly balanced semi-sweet pale ale malts. Great round flavors. Messaging carbonation. This is a great IPA.

cpetrone84 (1369) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Pour is a golden amber with a fairly tight white head and a good bit of lacing on the glass. Nose has a hint of grain and some sweet malt with a fair bit of citrus hop and lots of resin. Taste follows the nose, sweeter malt and lots of resiny hop. Citrus is mild, moderate bitterness, strong hop flavor but not the kind I love and gets a touch sweet. It is heavily carbonated, moderately soft but a touch of syrup.

kbudd19 (572) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle. Straw yellow pour with lots of foamy white head. Aroma, tropical fruits, pineapple, citrus, pine all the trademarks of a nice smelling IPA. Taste, prickly carbonation, citrus up front, followed by some bitter resinous hop flavour, finishes crisp and clean. Really solid.

stevendoel (30) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2014
An intense hop aroma and nice light pale color. It's bottle conditioned so it pours with a nice frothy smooth head. The taste starts out quite dry and finishes with a perfect blend of hops and malt. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
